Córdoba

The obverse (common to the fifteen pieces) shows the UNESCO logo accompanied, right, for the official emblem of the World Heritage Convention. At the bottom, the year of issue.

The reverse shows an image of the city of Córdoba, with Roman bridge over the Guadalquivir and the Mosque

The UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) recognised in 1994 the universal importance of Cordoba's historic legacy, and extended the title of World Heritage Site not only to the Mosque-Cathedral, but also to all the streets and buildings around it. In addition, in December 2012, Cordoba was awarded a further accolade: The Festival of the Patios (Courtyards) was added to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity sites.

Therefore, Cordoba now holds 3 World Heritage Site titles granted by the UNESCO: the Mosque-Cathedral (1984), the historical quarter surrounding it (1994) and the Festival of the Patios (Courtyards) (2012). In addition, with the rest of Spain, it shares the titles of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity awarded to Flamenco (2010) and the Mediterranean Diet (2010).
